First Grow Ever.....thinking 4x8 SCROG?

  1. Hi everyone!

    I am looking to start my first ever grow soon. I got out of the military last year and moved to Hawaii and i'm honestly sick of paying for it. I see how easily people around me grow it and i'm ready to give it a go myself. I have been researching and think I want to try a SCROG grow in a 4x8 grow tent. The lighting is where I'm unsure what to run. 2 600w HPS? Would 2 1000w be to much? I'm also unsure on how many plants to try.
    As of now I haven't bought any equipment but I believe that will change soon. Lighting and smell are my two main concerns. Any tips or advice would be excellent! Thanks in advance!

  2. Run 2 315 cmh. Unless u have the lights already. Or the new sansung diodes. Save electricity and have normal sun full spectrum bulbs with extra uv if u buy hortilux. Hps in my oppinion is on its way out[​IMG]

  3. I've actually never heard of any of those options so this is great to know! I am looking into them now! Your girls look beautiful bro!
  4. What is your goal regarding yield and amount of plants? 4 x 8 is quite large.
  5. Lighting should be good with 2 @ 600. What’s the rest of the plan? Medium and such. With that space, I would build 2 closets each 4x4 so you can stagger harvests. With that, you can optimally pull 1.5 lb a month. If you veg in another area.

  6. You could get 1000 watt hps dimmable ballasts. That way if 2x 600 watters arent enough then you can turn it up to 1000 watts. A 600 watt hps will fill a 4x4 pretty well.

    Alot of people will suggest looking into leds but i think for first timers HPS is a good way to go, very solid lights.

    Leds are still kinda all over the place and misleading from 90% of manufactures. You can get ahold of TBone_shuffle to get good info on them.
